Although using a compatible device, SmartRace can’t be bought on Google Play (Android)

If you’re sure your device is matching all requirements to run SmartRace but the app is still flagged as incompatible on Google Play, you may want to give the app “Market Helper” a try. This app may bypass the compatibility checks and allow you to install SmartRace.

Important: there is no guarantee that SmartRace will work correctly on your device if you manage to install it this way.

Thanks to user Christian Döhl for the hint!

SmartRace is a software for Mac, tablets and smartphones and is used for timing Carrera Digital tracks in 1:32 and 1:24 scale and via the Analogue mode also for analogue tracks (e.g. Carrera Evolution, Carrera Exclusiv, Carrera Go!!!, Ninco, Scalextric or others). SmartRace either connects to the Carrera AppConnect adapter via Bluetooth or takes the measurement in analogue mode via the camera of a smartphone connected via SmartRace Connect
